The mayor of Pelham, Alabama, appointed himself as interim human resources director as the city looks for a full-time hire. So reports the Pelham Reporter.
The Pelham City Council approved Mayor Gary Waters' appointment last month after consulting with legal counsel. Waters agreed to become the HR head with no extra pay.
"It's simply been determined that at this time it's not in our best interest for the city manager to be wearing both the human resources director hat and the city manager hat," says Rick Hayes, council president.
